Description

Peter Carl Faberg (Russian, 18461920) was the worlds greatest master of guilloch enameling, a time-intensive technique, in which polychrome enamel is layered over circular, straight, or wave patterns engraved on metal. The enamel is translucent, allowing light to penetrate and reflect off the metal, which shimmers as light catches it from different angles. Combining exquisite guilloch enameling with precious metals and stones, Faberg brought it to the very heights of luxury. Our handsome pen is based on a gold picture frame with guilloch enamel in the Museums collection, created by Fabergs studios before 1899.
